Information on the supervisory board

The compensation of the Supervisory Board is determined by the Annual General Meeting and is subject to the provisions contained in Section 14 of the Company statutes of Fresenius SE. Each member of the Supervisory Board shall receive a fixed compensation of € 13 thousand. The members of the Audit Committee and the Personnel Committee of the Supervisory Board receive an additional € 10 thousand each and the Chairman of the committee a further € 10 thousand. For each full fiscal year, the remuneration increases by 10 % for each percentage point that the dividend paid on each ordinary share for that year (gross dividend according to the resolution of the Annual General Meeting) exceeds 3.6 % of the amount equal to the subscribed capital divided by the number of non-par value shares; residual amounts are interpolated. The Chairman receives twice this amount and the deputies to the Chairman one and a half times the amount of a Supervisory Board member. All members of the Supervisory Board receive appropriate compensation for costs of travel and accommodation incurred in connection with their duties as members of the Supervisory Board. Fresenius SE provides to the members of the Supervisory Board insurance coverage in an adequate amount (relating to their function) and on an adequate excess amount basis.
